Beauty Queen Missing, found dead!


Maria Jose Alvarado is crowned the new Miss Honduras in San Pedro, Sula, Honduras, April 26, 2014. The dark-haired beauty was to have flown to London Wednesday to compete in the Miss World pageant - the high point of her reign as Miss Honduras. But the beauty queen and her sister were found shot dead , police said the sister's boyfriend confessed to killing them in a jealous rage over his girlfriend dancing with another man.

Bodies believed to be 19-year-old Maria Jose Alvarado and her 23-year-old sister, Sofia, were discovered buried near the spa where they disappeared a week earlier while celebrating the boyfriend's birthday. Their bodies were discovered early Wednesday after Ruiz led investigators to the remote gravesite where he and an alleged accomplice buried them in a mountainous area of Santa Barbara. 

"We had her gown ready and her traditional dress costumes," said television personality Salvador Nasrallah, who employed Alvarado as a model on his TV game show, X-O Da Dinero. "This is not a crime of passion; this is machismo," added Nasrallah, a former presidential candidate.

Honduras pageant organizer Eduardo Zablah said the country will not compete this year because of the tragic death of Alvarado, who according to her pageant profile played volleyball and soccer and wanted to be a diplomat after graduating university.

The sisters' mother, Teresa Munoz, told Televicentro that Ruiz called her the morning after her daughters disappeared, acting nervous and claiming the young women had left the party in a car with some other people. She said her daughters were trusting and naive. "They were not very astute about assessing the people around them. They were just friendly," Munoz said. "They were going out with people they hadn't known very long."

"Violence against women is a huge problem in Honduras," said Adriana Beltran, a senior associate at the Washington Office on Latin America. "A lot of girls die this way, but because they're not famous, it doesn't get the attention and the crimes go unpunished," Nasrallah said.

May you rest in peace Maria Jose Alvarado.
